"Guilt-free snack! These chips are made without any fat. For attractive circular chips, look for sweet potatoes that are round rather than long. I think these are even yummier than regular potato chips..."
Serving Size: 1 (65 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 2
"I've never given a negative review but I have to say that these were tasteless, a waste of sweet potatoes. The only flavor that came through was the salt and pepper. My hubby agreed."
"Excellent - but do take note that the "serving size," touted as only 3 calories, is ONE CHIP. I think a more realistic serving size would be 10-15 chips."
"I made these and they came out beautiful and crisp. I used a mandolin to get them thin. Yes, they do shrink down a lot. I did not season them. I did find them rather tasteless. But I also made them as a healthy snack for my 2 mini-schnauzers. They love sweet potato treats from the pet store, but I've found them to be way too expensive. It is much cheaper to make them myself. My dogs LOVE them!!! So if you don't like them and have dogs I'm pretty sure they will love them too!"
"absolutely yummy!!!! Instead of salt and pepper to season I used cinnamon and sea salt... they came out super delicious! Just need to work on getting them a bit crispier but I probably got a bit impatient and took them out to early!!!"
"I always liked sweet potato fries and thought I'd give this baked chip recipe a whirl. I liked them. They are very colorful and were a nice, crunchy snack. I used a mandoline to get thin, uniform slices."
"i'm sorry, i really wanted to like these...and, just...yuck. i sliced them as thin as i possibly could, followed the directions exactly, waited till they cooled, and yum - a raw potato :/ so much work for nothing"
"Read the reviews on the thinness to cut the slices. Paper thin turned out great - slightly bigger not so good. Very time consumming for not much result in the end."
"I found these really simple to make and really tasty too. I forgot to sprinkle on the seasoning but I still enjoyed them. Thank you for sharing this :)"
"Not REALLY tasty....mostly like salt & pepper. Perhaps I needed yams rather than the pale yellow sweet potatoes. Also, needed to cook them longer than suggested."
"We had high hopes for this recipe but it didn't work for us. I tried the recipe twice and neither time had the desired outcome. The first time I followed instructions as written and the chips were too chewy. I thought maybe my mandoline made them too thick so the next time I cooked them longer (about 1 hour on each side) and they still had some chewiness (but not as much)."
"i spent a good deal of time slicing the potatoes very thin and doing just what the recipe called for. they were awful. they did not cook through (200 if just not high enough to do it) and were chewey and tasted like raw potatoes. this recipe needs a lot of help. what a waste of time and energy."
"I haven't made these yet, but I sure will! Just wanted to let the reviewer concerned about the nutrition facts know that it states it is for 1 chip and the recipe says it makes 36 chips... So all of them would be 108 calories. Hope that helps :)"
"These are tasty, but I must have done something wrong because they shrunk up into little teeny tiny itsy bitsy chips. I made three cookies sheets and they barely filled a cereal bowl."
"I'm not much a of a sweet potato fan, but I've been wanting to eat more, since they are so healthy. I make russets like this and my family loves them, so I thought I'd try it with yams, and I do really like them like this! I don't slice them potato chip thin, but if you cook them long enough and make sure to keep a close eye on them so they don't burn, they come out simi crispy and very tasty. I also use seasoning salt and paprika. Definitely a healthy and tasty snack or side! Thanks!"
"Delicious. Takes a while to get the chips crispy, though. I suggest making at least 6 large yams/sweet potatos if you're going to take the time to do this. That way, you'll have some leftovers...that is, unless you invite your neighbors over."
"These chips were yummy, but a lot of work for not much food. Two cookies sheets held about 1/2 of sweet potato and they shrunk down to a few cups of chips. They were tasty, however."
"I'm not rating because my food allergies reacted to this--it wasn't cooked enough for me to not react (though I react to canned lima beans as well...*roll eyes*). If I get around to trying it again I think I'd have better success with thinner slices, dipping in boiling water as another reviewer did and using garlic salt and black pepper."
"These were great, made just as stated in the recipe and they came out fabulous. I'll definitely make again. What a healthy and delicious snack. Thanks!"
"I made these yesterday and today for a mid-day healthy snack. I sliced the potatoes relatively thin, soaked them in boiling water for just a few seconds, then lined a cookie sheet with the slices. They were wet, so I poured some salt over them. I had the oven at 450 and put them in for about 10 minutes on each side. They weren't full on crunchy chips, but I liked them with a little softness to them. This is such a healthy and easy snack. I'll look forward to making this again soon! Thanks for posting!"
